The Align to Pixel Grid ghost seems to haunt the document/object.
You may untick it at different levels.
It is the default for certain kinds of documents, and it may be applied at object level.
I believe you can get to untick it through the Transform panel.
You are welcome, quakebox.
Just thought id add this also to the forum just incase you dont want to keep going back and unticking the Align to Pixel Grid option box. If you want it off completely, then go to the small arrow (far right of the transform palette) and turn off Align New Objects To Pixel Grid. Then things wont snap everytime you create a new shape or add guides etc..hope that helps vector buddies
